About the book
The art world in the City is a high stakes game with patrons, galleries and agents vying for the next big thing. The premier art school which grooms these talented artists is the breeding ground for creativity. With the freshman class steeped in social games that can make or break careers, Lino Dejarre and his friends find themselves right in the thick of it. But underneath the surface lies sexual favors, manipulation and depression where drugs and alcohol are indulged to take the edge off of the taxing demands of being a performer. When the ballerina, Arthenice, is swept up in the art world, it is only Lino and June who can protect her from being eaten alive. Learn all about the art world through the eyes of the inspired young artists and patrons who fuel the greatest performances and its deepest lies.
